Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choirs Resonate With Beauty Made By Human Tribe

Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir3, ‘Water Night’

What began just now as a Wired Magazine excursion into Planet TEDx, took a stunning, emotional turn into the world of classical composer and conductor Eric Whitacre and his global choral works produced by singers using their webcams. (Note, for heavens sake read the article on organizing TEDx events in your community.)

Torn between two competing interests, I speed read the article and returned to Whitacre, where I’m a puddle of tears.

In the TED video below Eric Whitacre describes an online experiment he’d recently carried out. “He posted the sheet music for one of his popular choral works, as well as a video of him conducting the work as a piano played along. Then he invited singers around the globe to perform their parts—soprano, alto, tenor, bass—in front of their own webcams.”

After hundreds of people responded with videos — many made 100 times or more until the performance was perfect to each individual — Whitacre arranged them into a simulation of a real-life choir, with himself as conductor. Speaking to the TED crowd, Whitacre explains that he was “moved to tears” when he first saw it—these singers “on their own desert islands, sending electronic messages in bottles to each other.”

I am so moved by this concept and admit to knowing nothing about it until this minute. Eric Whitacre’s website is another excursion all by itself. Thanks, Wired. I was struggling for something special to share this moment, and you delivered.

PS, I came to Wired from TED -- where I struck out in my quick swoop of recent TED Talks. Wired sent me right back to TED with a noble purpose of sharing this vision of our planet and people together. Of course, this is the AOC progressive vision of humanity that drives socialn conservatives mad and labels people like myself unpatriotic for my embrace of the global community.

It is here that hope for humanity lives, the idea that the power of our voices together can somehow stop the savagery of others toward each other. It seems appropriate to dedicate AOC’s introduction of Eric Whitacre’s ‘Water Night’ to a cease fire and an honest, viable attempt to stop the killing in Gaza and Israel. ~ Anne

Calls Mount for Komen Resignations | Prochoice Republicans Beg Right Wing to Stop Religious War Escalations

Daily French Roast

Anne is reading …

Despite the efforts of Susan G. Komen to begin to repair its reputation, some people are still angry at the foundation. Here, a small group of women recently protested outside of Komen’s office in Dallas. (Rex C. Curry / Associated Press)Eve Ellis, who served on the Susan G. Komen board of directors for six years and works now as a financial advisor at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in New York issued a private letter that wound up being published by the Guardian UK.

The letter is devastating, writes the LA Times,  calling for the founder of the Susan J. Komen breast cancer philanthropy Nancy Brinker to resign. Writing that there is no doubt that Komen’s decision to defund Planned Parenthood was political, she then “dings Brinker for her links to the George W. Bush administration and for recently hiring Ari Fleischer, Bush’s former White House press secretary, for help on crisis communication. Then the big guns come out as she calls for Brinker to resign, the board to be replaced, and vice president Karen Handel to be fired.” (Note, Handel resigned on Tuesday.)

Santorum: Obama leading Christians to the ‘guillotine’ The Raw Story

“They are taking faith and crushing it. Why? When you marginalize faith in America, when you remove the pillar of God-given rights then what’s left is the French Revolution. What’s left is a government that gives you rights. What’s left are no unalienable rights. What’s left is a government that will tell you who you are, what you’ll do and when you’ll do it. What’s left in France became the the guillotine.”

Believing in Birth Control Doesn’t Make Me Un-American | 2Ps in a Pod AOC Body

(Excerpt) America is much more like the Arab world in our thinking about women.

Do you know that in Utah, both houses moved in 2010 to make miscarriage a felony in the state? If a woman slipped on ice in winter, her husband could have her imprisoned for not wearing proper shoes and causing the miscarriage with her negligence. Only the governor’s veto kept this legislation from passing.

In South Dakota last year, legislators worked on a law to make it justifiable homicide for a man to shoot his wife if she assisted her daughter in ending a pregnancy. Insanity has taken over the demand of American men that they control women’s bodies. And there is no end to the new legislation in sight.

Under the weight of your controversy over me, Bro. Dennis, I’ve had to return to my own inner psychological roots, locking down the essence of my own identity and principles. This fight for me as a good woman of honor comes at a time when the Susan G. Komen/Planned Parenthood problem is the topic of every Republican candidate for president, along with the new argument that birth control shouldn’t exist for women in America, says Santorum. It’s too dangerous for our health. Romney will reverse himself on birth control, like he’s reversed every other position in his career. I am terrified of Republicans, because they will hunt down women all over America.

Talking Points Memo weighs in on the new Republican war on contraception, writing that pro-choice Republicans are begging the party to pull back from the building fight over contraception before it’s too late.

“I think this week’s outrage over the Komen decision should be a warning to the Republican party about how quickly there was a mass outrage over further and further attacks on general women’s health,” Kellie Ferguson, executive director of Republican Majority for choice, told me Wednesday. “You could see the same backlash on attacks on contraception.”

Pandering to the extreme wing of social conservatives will take the party down a path to disaster warns Ferguson. A majority of Americans and a majority of Catholics support the White House decision on offering contraception in the insurance package for Catholic institutions like hospitals and universities. 28 states already mandate exactly what is contained in the new federal plan.

Cocaine Trade Moves Out of Colombia | US Defense Warns Israel | Fat Taste Receptor Gene Protein Identified

Lesley Masson & Marcella Breukers | Michelle Du Xuan | Harper’s Bazaar China February 2012

Daily French Roast

Anne is reading …

Despite the demands of many Republican presidential candidates that the US go to war with Iran sooner rather than later, the WSJ writes that US defense leaders are seriously concerned that Israel plans to take military action against Iran, ignoring US admonitions about the dire consequences of a strike.

The Jerusalem Post is also reporting the WSJ story.

Cocaine: The New Front Lines

Since 2000, cultivation of cocoa leaves — the raw material of cocaine — has plunged 65% in Colombia, says the UN. That doesn’t mean that America’s white powder consumption is declining, writes WSJ in its Saturday essay. Rather, the drug trade has moved on, with cocaine growers ramping up production in countries not nearly as friendly to America. They include Peru, Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia, where populist leaders have no interest in cooperating with US anti-drug efforts.

Tongue Taste of Fat

Image credit: Pepino labResearchers believe they’ve found a human receptor in a gene that makes people sensitive to the taste of fat. People with a particular variant of the CD36 gene are far more sensitive to fat than others. It’s possible that it people are highly sensitive to the taste of fat, they taste less of it the more they eat. As a result, those individuals seek more fatty foods to be satisfied.

The research results don’t confirm that obese people generally carry the CD36 gene variation, based on DNA tests with a group of 21 obese people. But the variation is very significant. Those participants who made more CD36 protein were eight times more sensitive to the presence of fat than those making 50 percent as much of the protein. via Science Daily
